Learn how to make a square modular origami frame. There are 3 variations: simple frame, layered frame & box frame. Each frame is made with 4 sheets of square paper, no glue required.

These frames work the best when using thick paper or card, even thick card-stock. If using thin paper, take note of the alternative method at 9:47 – basically, tuck the lower flap over the top instead of under. For some reason it works better.

This square version of the modular origami frame has a couple different options. You can make a plain version, a version with a double overlapped look. Finally you can also make the double frame into a holder if you’d like your frame to have a backing.

You can make this frame with rectangular paper too, you’d get a thinner frame if you started with the paper in a portrait position, you’d get a thick frame if you started with it in a landscape position.
